Diana Escamilla Killed, Ricardo Huichapa Noriega Injured in Car Accident on TX-183 in Dallas, TX

UPDATE (June 30, 2022): Sources identified the victims involved in the accident. The passenger killed in the crash was identified as 27-year-old Diana Escamilla. The driver was said to be Ricardo Huichapa Noriega. The factors surrounding the crash are still under investigation.

Dallas, TX -- June 5, 2022, a woman was killed and one person was injured due to an accident where their vehicle crashed along Highway 183.

Investigators reported that the crash took place at around 7:15 a.m. along Highway 183 near Regal Row. It appears that a Chevy Silverado was traveling along the highway when it went from an exit ramp onto the gore. There, the pickup crashed into the impact attenuator and a retaining wall.

Due to the crash, a passenger in the vehicle sustained fatal injuries. Reports identified the victim only as a 27-year-old woman. The driver of the pickup had reportedly non-incapacitating injuries.

Police believe the driver was under the influence of alcohol. This cannot currently be confirmed.

Commentary on Diana Escamilla, Ricardo Huichapa Noriega Car Accident in Dallas

The possibility of alcohol here is more than concerning, and it's something that always warrants thorough investigations when it comes up. Not only could there be a drunk driver responsible for all of this, but there could even be a local drinking establishment that needs to be held accountable.

In Texas, dram shop law says that an alcohol provider who over-serves an obviously intoxicated person can be liable for damages resulting from that intoxication. Whether that's a bar, liquor store, or restaurant, businesses breaking the law and harming their community need to face the appropriate consequences. The fact dram shop can do this while also getting folks the help they need only makes it that much more important to consider.

Again, it's possible that there were other factors involved here. It's possible that something unusual--like mechanical issues or a medical condition--caused the crash and not alcohol. One way or the other, there's a family out there in need of answers, and it usually takes thorough independent investigations to get them those answers.
